Cartoon and Characters

The cartoon has been delayed by a week because I was working on something else. So, here are some characters from the ‘something else’, followed by the cartoon. The characters are supposed to make history appealing to kids.





And the next part of my on-going mystery…

Here is a picture I did loosely themed around Walpurgisnacht, which is the eve of May Day. May Day is one of my favourite celebrations of the year, because it is so unabashedly pagan. People who might be pretty straight-laced throughout the rest of the year put flowers in their hats and run around after mad-looking effigies of god-knows-what banging drums, or dance around phallic symbols, or cover themselves in straw. I might do a colour version of this picture, just because I like colouring in! If it’s any good I’ll post it later.


And here is the next part of my Cornish mystery…

Smugglers Cove

The mystery continues… I know, I know, only one page this week, sorry! I know you literally cannot sleep for not knowing why there are a small number of discoloured sea birds in a fictional seaside town, but fear not: the next one should be ready sooner.

Hello Again

Life. It is very time-consuming. Its been a long while since my last post, and much has happened… I’ve created a lot of stuff that may or may not appear in the blog at some stage; some of it is much too rough and developmental. I am temporarily scanner-less which has made things a bit tricky, but I hope to get hold of one in the not-too-distant future.

One of the things I struggle with is having too many ideas and not enough time to execute them. One particularly light and fluffy idea that didn’t seem worthy of greatly detailed artwork but was nevertheless something I wanted to get out of my system was a series of gently surreal detective stories based in Cornwall. Hint: we’re not talking murder here.

I love Cornwall. And I love detective stories. I’ve written a few very silly stories based in the fictional Cornish town of St. Blazes, featuring detective Poltroon. The style is quick and childish. Here are the first three pages of one of the stories… I’m off to Paris for a ¬†few days after posting but hopefully I’ll be able to keep the story trickling through.

Jurassic World

I have to say, I’m with the paleontologists on the Jurassic World trailer. I mean, I’m pretty much always happy to see a bunch of big dinosaurs running around… although the genetically modified one looks like a step too far… but I think they really did miss an opportunity here. I would have loved to have seen dinosaurs which reflected the discoveries that have been made since the first film came out; dinosaurs with quills and feathers. So here is my picture of Jurassic World. Which will not impress any paleontologists as I have made up all the dinosaurs!
